Holyoke Parking Garage
As precast concrete is well known for its adjustable elements, panels were created inset with a masonry facade that reflects the brick used in so many of the older surrounding buildings. Also cast into the concrete were arches, gables, reveals and other architectural elements reminiscent of neoclassicism. Even the stair tiles appear to have red tile roofs.
Despite the lavish architectural details, however, the use of precast concrete ensured fast-track construction - the project was completed in just ten months - enhancing an already stately downtown Holyoke.
